Photographer's Note

ROMAN CATHOLIC BASILICA OF ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST was where this picture was taken .While waiting for my daughter at university , I decided to visit the BASILICA Church and I was intrigued by this statue . I am not sure of the exact reason , maybe because it is beautiful and simple . I remember the story of Our Lady of Fatima from my early days . Anyway , whatever the reason , the photographs is here for your perusal . I hope you enjoy it ! I would appreciate any constructive criticism .
The Photographs was cropped , and color adjusted.
The following is some information on this church and more pictures to follow :
With its twin 43-metre-high towers and location on the high hill on the northern side of the harbour, the Basilica has long been the dominant feature of the St. John's skyline. Begun in 1841 and completed in 1850, the Military Road structure was consecrated as a cathedral in 1855. At that time, it was the largest church in North America. Built in the shape of a Latin cross, it was declared a minor Basilica on its centenary in 1955. It is now a National Historic Site. Guided summer tours available.
